I suspect it's only Russia these days - all the countries of the FSU have their own currencies now as far as I know.

Martin,Belarus has only ever issued medal-coins.The Belarusian Rubel is entirely a note-based circulating currency.Cambodia last issued coins in 1994,but they were withdrawn after a short period.

Since 2003,the Zimbabwean currency has been an entirely note-based currency.In 2006,there were Bearer Cheques issued for denominations as low as 1 Cent,but these disappeared from circulation straight away.The highest denominated Bearer Cheque is the $10,000,000 denomination,which is still worth nothing in real terms,but there are avid collectors of the Zimbabwean banknote series,like myself.

Aidan, The original question was
I was interested in knowing which all countries in Europe do not have their own coins.
Since when are Cambodia and Zimbabwe European countries?

A3v1,I was comparing the numismatic situation in Belarus with that of both Cambodia & Zimbabwe,as they are all issuing notes only,no currency coins.

Nagorno-Karabakh DOES issue both coins & medal-coins,which are listed in Krause.There are 100 Luma in 1 Nagorno-Karabakhi Dram.Nagorno-Karabakh also has its own notes,but these have never been listed in Pick.

I picked up this bit of information from Wike "Starting in 2008, the Central Bank of the Republic of Belarus announced that the ruble will be tied to the United States dollar instead of the Russian ruble."

Martin,
  I think that the Russian Rouble circulates alongside the Transdniesteran Rouble in Transdniester,but I can't say so with certainty though.Can anyone please confirm?

Both Abkhazia & South Ossetia also use Russian currency as well.

The Abkazian Apsar is a medal-coin denomination linked at 1 Apsar = 10 Roubles.

This is a way of being provocative towards Georgia.
